These 64gb models are easy to find. The Wi-Fi only 256 GB is the one most often out of stock. I grabbed a pink one, despite being my least preferred color and it is easily my most reached for iPad.
That's because it is ridiculous to still sell a 64 gb model.

I agree, they should have discontinued all of the 64 gigs models a while ago and made 128 the new base model. Hard drives are so cheap, Apple always rakes us over the coals for a reasonable amount of storage. Not everyone wants everything in the cloud and the fees that come with that!

for real… a high end SSD costs $150 for 1tb, but if I want 1tb in an iPad, that’s $700 extra (with 8gb extra RAM to be fair.) 512gb is $300 extra.

there’s no way to get around the fact that consumers get absolutely shafted by apple’s storage upcharges. i just want an iPad with $150 worth of storage, but not pay $1799 minimum for the device.

This should have started at $399 for 128GB. Apple, while claiming to be carbon neutral, is making this device crippled from the get-go. Don't they think that people will be frustrated and will have to buy a new iPad when this fills up? This product's price structure is a pure example of how Apple has gotten greedy recently to increase share price.

Apple never increased prices for any given product before iPhone X. When iPhone X came out, they increased prices substantially and created a lower-end version of the product with the original price scheme. Paying as much for less.

Apple is incentivized to not increase the base model storage so they can push people to iCloud Drive to make an ongoing subscription fee on every consumer. I for one will never pay an on going fees to Apple, but they are deliberately forcing users into this choice.

They will only increase the storage once they see that the media that people produce/consumer is drastically higher than that, so the incentive to still get higher iCloud subscription plans is still always there.

Every consumer is measured in Lifetime Value (LTV), not just one-off purchases anymore.
